Fort Wayne Civic Theatre presents the musical The Drowsy Chaperone, featuring Music & Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar. The production will run March 2-17, 2013.
The Man in Chair, a mousy, apartment-bound Broadway fanatic, seeking to cure his "non-specific sadness," listens to a recording of the fictional 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he shares this rare recording with the audience, the characters appear in his apartment, and it is transformed into an impressive Broadway set. His love for The Drowsy Chaperone is contagious!
Directed by Phillip H. Colglazier, the creative team includes assistant director James Del Priore, stage manager Clarence F. Tennis, III and assist. stage manager Emma Ashmawi.
